Hi all, I just got a brother overlock machine and have been tring to teach myself how to use it. I was wondering what stitch everyone uses on dipers and mama cloth. I used the 4 thread stitch and it seemed very difficult to go around curves and corners. Maybe too wide? Do you use the 3 thread? I wasn't sure if this would be strong enough to withstand all the washing. I really need alot alot alot of practice, it's quite different from using a regular sewing machine. Is there a trick to rounding curves and corners nicely? I saw somewhere to trim down one edge of the corner flush with where the blade trims the fabric for corners, I haven't tried it yet.
